    The Cotswold Water Park offers extensive opportunities for anyone to go fishing. From expert to novice there is something for everyone to enjoy in idyllic surroundings. With many of our holiday properties being located around lakes, fishing is never far away. There are also several specialist fishing lakes within the Water Park if you wish to challenge yourself more for which day tickets are available.

    Most Cotswolds Retreats properties are based on the Cotswold Water park, very close to Cirencester, the Capital of the Cotswolds. We also have a cottage in Stow on the Wold.

    Stow-on the-Wold is the highest of the Cotswold towns standing exposed on 800 feet high Stow Hill at a junction of seven major roads, including the Roman Fosse Way.

    The Cotswold Water Park is an area of over 40 square miles and 180 lakes, with many different leisure providers, and a variety of places to stay. This stunning wetlands landscape hosts tens of thousands of breeding and watering birds and is an ideal destination for watching wildlife all year round.

    With thirteen settlements of varying sizes across the Cotswold Water Park, it is no surprise that there are plenty of interesting places to visit and explore, for example, the town of Fairford boasts the only complete set of medieval stained glass in a parish church anywhere in the country; Cricklade where the great Roman road, Ermin Street crosses the River Thames; Down Ampney, the birthplace of Ralph Vaughan Williams; Ashton Keynes, with more bridges over the infant river Thames than London.

    Stow on the Wold

    “Why Not” is a luxury 18th century, 2-bedroom Cotswold-stone cottage, minutes from the main square. Cosy living room with a casual dining area, stylish bright kitchen. Sleeps 4.

    This cosy cottage is set over 3 floors.

    “Why Not” is a charming 3 floor cottage situated in the beautiful Cotswold village Stow on the Wold. The cottage is situated down a very quiet, peaceful and private lane but minutes from the town centre. Kingham and Moreton in Marsh are the closest train stations, and I can recommend taxis on request. Lovely restaurants and pubs are within short walking distance. Parking is on Well Lane next to the cottage and is generally easy – and free.
